Left to right, there's a noticeable difference in Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel's bikini looks — and we're not just talking about the color scheme. As a bodacious babe on the pages of Victoria's Secret, Candice doesn't seem to be lacking up top. However, when we spied the supermodel hanging off duty in the Miami surf, her bikini told a different story, leading us to one pretty awesome conclusion: a little lift on a Victoria's Secret bikini top goes a long way. The retailer's long been known for its figure-boosting bra silhouettes, and its swim styles offer the same famous lift and support. Moral of the story? If you're looking to play up what you've got, it doesn't take too much to make it happen (especially since so many of the VS figure-enhancing styles are now on sale).
Shop the suits below, and remember these keys to playing up a small bust:
- Flaunt what you have, and fake what you don't. If you're looking to create more cleavage, opt for an underwire bra top. It will help shape and support your breasts without being too over the top. You can also pump up the volume on top with ruffles, bold prints, and light, well-placed padding (just don't overdo it!).
- If you're happy with your bust size and just want to show it off, your best bet is a triangle top. They're notorious for enhancing a small bust in a natural way by lifting and separating.
- Tops with bold prints, ruffles, and embellishments add intrigue and feminine flair and can create the appearance of more curves on top.
